Humanities and Social Sciences are about the study of people.
If you want to gain a detailed understanding of human nature and what it means for our world, along with a whole host of transferable skills, then these are the subjects for you.
Importantly, Humanities & Social Sciences subjects can facilitate your route to university and give you a wealth of applicable knowledge and analytical savvy.
Charlie Avis studied A Levels in Geography, Maths and Physics, as well as a PE Diploma during his time at HSDC Havant (previously Havant College) back in 1985, and through these early career-defining decisions his options were opened up to a number of different universities and endless future options.
Now with his career well established, Charlie works as a UN Officer in the United Nations Environment Programme in Geneva, Switzerland.
Reflecting on his time at the former Havant College, Charlie said:
“Havant helped me get three solid A Level passes which basically then gave me my choice of any university.
“This paved the way for me to follow my passion for the environment and, luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to work in that sector ever since.”
“HSDC provided me with the opportunity for autonomous study and the choice of subjects that I wanted to study, which helped me develop relevant knowledge as well as relevant skills for the workplace.”Lucas Ratcliffe, A Level and CTEC student
